This is the simplest 10 sets of 10 reps, done with all two hand swings. The rest period starts out generous with a 45 second break before moving onto the next set where the rest interval is decreased to only 30 seconds, followed by yet another rest decrease of 15 seconds (equal work/rest.) It starts again with a long rest, shorter and then the shortest, three times repeated before ending the 10 x 10 with the last set done with a 15 sec break. Here is the workout written out:
10 reps, 15 work, 45 sec rest (1 min)
10 reps, 15 sec work, 30 sec rest (45 sec)
10 reps, 15 sec work, 15 sec rest (30 sec)
repeat x 3 = 9 sets +
10 reps, 15/15
100 swing reps total 7 min (not including the last 15 sec rest interval)
Gosh, it's been so long since Mark and I traveled to Croatia and back I almost forgot we went! But that's only because as soon as I got back I lead The Swing Quest in Monterey at Iron Republic and took my mom Nancy, who was visiting from Denver, and my sister Donna on a weekend road trip to Big Sur! Busy busy.
Here are some highlights....oh, that's after you do the workout!
Having lunch at Nepenthe Restaurant in Big Sur.....it was about 100 degrees outside! The fries weren't mine btw! But truth be told I ate a ton of potatoes/fries during my trip to Croatia, as pictures above!
And now I'm off to Vancouver in the morning to participate in a charity one hour long Clean and Jerk for Kettlebells for Autism hosted by my good friend Tricia dong. I'm going with one of my training partners, Deepika, to lift on Saturday and take a workshop in Sunday on Kettlebell Sport technique and practice. I hope to come back with a ton of pictures, but it's almost 8:00pm and I'm not packed. Yikes. 7:00am flight and I still can't decide what to wear! High quality problems.
